If you have sensitive teeth, you can understand the frustration of trying to enjoy an ice cream cone, a cup of tea or a piece of caramel only to experience a sharp pain through your teeth. I do not have sensitive teeth, but Tim does.
The dentist told Tim his teeth are sensitive due to a receding gum line caused by brushing too hard. He recommend that Tim start, and keep using sensitive toothpaste. The active ingredient in sensitive toothpaste builds protection on your sensitive teeth, so you need to keep using it.
When shopping for sensitive tooth paste, we found there were not a lot of options, so we bought what was available. Then we received a sample of new product from Biotene. This toothpaste not only provides protection for the teeth, but also helps eliminate dry mouth, which is thought to be one of the leading causes of sensitive teeth. The taste is different, but good. I will be looking for this the next time we need to purchase sensitive toothpaste.
